Mood Boosts (formerly Coffee Hour)
We're rebranding our Coffee Hours to Mood Boosts! We think this better reflects what the events are like - which is an opportunity to connect with Honors faculty and your fellow Honors students, work on the jigsaw puzzle, check out the BioLounge exhibits, and more! Stop in for something to drink, grab a snack, and hang out for a bit. We'd love to see you there!

Interrupting Racism Workshop
**Updated date and time**
Wednesday, March 8th from 6:00-7:30pm
Looking for ways to interrupt racist remarks or actions when they happen? Leaders from the Peers Educating & Empowering Peers and from the Center for Inclusion and Social Change will present a framework in which to understand racism and lead a reflection-based discussion. Students will leave with a knowledge of language to use in interrupting racism, as well as strategies for intervention and barriers that commonly arise. Participants should gain confidence to engage in “critical conversations” and an understanding of how to be an accomplice to people of different backgrounds in resisting racism.

Creativity and Conventions: Forging Meaningful Exchange Between Innovation and Traditionalism
Each of us is unique and trying to find a way to situate ourselves in larger communities. What is your genius–your craving for fulfilling and thrilling learning? Where in our educational system can we make room for the inner journeys that fuel our educational choices and priorities? Using research in Transcultural Fusion Dance as a case study, Donna Mejia invites you to a shared conversation drenched with realness and humor, informed by 30+ years in higher education. Let's explore the tension in our educational efforts between canonical legacies and the innovative edge we aim to reach. This session includes ballistic beats, copious candles, viral videos, and resilience strategies for the ups and downs of our lifelong learning.
